We'll gather for one hour on Wednesday evening (17th Feb 2016) outside the Lady Cilento Hospital in Brisbane to show these families that we stand with them to respect their human dignity and thus to protect their well-being. 

Our presence will show our support for the brave doctors, nurses and other staff of the hospital who have acted to protect Baby Asha, and will send a clear message to those who are threatening these vulnerable children.
